• WWE Is Planning A Name Change For RAW Star

RAW Superstar Elias’ musician gimmick ended in 2021. WWE aired vignettes which showed him burning his Guitar.

WWE Officials were working on Elias’ new character and they came up with a new look, but he reportedly looked too similar to “Macho Man” Randy Savage, so they nixed that character.

Here’s what Wrestlevotes reported:

“Interesting note on Elias, source states they had no end plan for graveyard vignettes. Just shot them to kill off the ‘music’ gimmick.

His initial rebranding weeks back looked too similar to Randy Savage w/ colorful trunks & beard so Vince & co didn’t like it. Back to square 1.”

On SK Wrestling’s Legion Of RAW, former WWF Writer Vince Russo addressed a report of Elias being seen with “no beard and cropped hair” backstage on RAW.

Below is what Russo said:

“I don’t even know if you know this, okay? Elias looked like a bonafide superstar, bonafide! Bro, did you know? We haven’t seen him in so long. I don’t even know if you know this, bro.

Did you know they had him cut everything? For what? They haven’t used him since! He cut all his hair off, bro. He cut his beard for what? You’re not going to tell me that’s not a rib?”

In an update on the Elias situation, Fightful Select is reporting that WWE is discussing plans for his return to RAW with a new character and name change.

Some vignettes for his return have already been filmed as well.
